During April, the hotel elevates its commitment to wellness with the launch of its new Restore Floor and accompanying restorative packages, enhancing an already robust focus on guest wellbeing.

Perched along the scenic banks of the Yarra River at 588b Swan Street Richmond, this sanctuary offers a respite from the urban flurry. It’s an eco-friendly, dog-welcoming haven where style meets affordability, and tranquility is the order of the day.

The newly minted Restore Floor has been thoughtfully crafted to nurture the wellbeing of each guest, encompassing spaces dedicated to the fundamental aspects of wellness. Here, one can rejuvenate in the warmth of an infrared sauna, available for solitary reflection or shared relaxation.

The Massage Room invites weary travellers to dissolve their stress in sumptuous massage chairs, while the Balance Room offers a serene retreat for meditation. Not forgetting the fun, the hotel continues to delight with its Karaoke and Arcade Rooms, ensuring wellness extends beyond the physical.


As Australia’s first Element by Westin hotel, Element Melbourne Richmond opened its doors in 2019 with 168 naturally lit rooms, including exclusive deluxe balcony accommodations. The design emphasizes communal and personal wellness spaces, appealing to both business and leisure travellers. The pet-friendly policy ensures that guests need not part from their furry companions.

Wellness permeates every aspect of the hotel experience. The Bikes to Borrow program encourages active exploration along the picturesque trails of the Yarra River.

The rooms, bathed in natural light, are sanctuaries in themselves, featuring Heavenly® Beds by Westin and spa-inspired bathrooms with rain showers to foster complete relaxation.

A 24/7 Motion Fitness centre equipped with state-of-the-art Technogym facilities allows for personalised workouts.

Sustainability is woven into the fabric of Element Melbourne. The hotel’s green architecture includes water-efficient fixtures, energy-saving LED lighting, and a robust recycling program. Innovative eco-initiatives like in-house water filtration, electric vehicle charging stations, and carbon-neutral flooring underscore a commitment to environmental stewardship.

Mint Lane Restaurant and Bar, the hotel’s dining gem, offers a menu infused with contemporary Asian influences, crafted from sustainable, local ingredients. The onsite herb garden provides fresh flavours daily, enhancing both the dishes and the artisanal cocktails. The Al Fresco dining area is a delightful spot for guests and their pets to unwind.

For those in a rush, the restaurant’s Grab and Go service is complemented by the Restore Pantry, which supports local producers by offering a selection of local snacks and beverages.

Element Melbourne also caters to corporate and special events with 3,000 square feet of versatile event space, featuring expert planning services and a unique outdoor terrace with breathtaking views of the Melbourne skyline.

At Element Melbourne, adventure and relaxation go hand in hand, embodied through thoughtful design and intuitive service. The hotel invites guests to experience a blend of wellbeing and environmental consciousness, with the ‘Rest and Restore’ package starting from $249 per night. This includes access to the infrared sauna, massage chairs, and wellness rooms, alongside the popular Bikes to Borrow.

For those seeking a bespoke wellness experience, the Restore Floor offers hourly access, allowing guests to tailor their journey to rejuvenation.
